Dear Fellow COGA Task Force Members:

One of my colleagues co-chairs the Education and Outreach Working Group
(EOWG) and he reached out to me with an urgent request for help from the
COGA Task Force.  He would like for us to take a look at a small section
from their page entitled, "How People with Disabilities Use the Web."  They
are trying to publish it within the next week.

Their primary need is for us to review the section entitled, "Cognitive and
learning <https://w3c.github.io/wai-people-use-web/diversity#cognitive>."
They want to know if there is anything that is inaccurate or needs a better
description.  They need the feedback quickly in order to make the changes
before publication.  Anything the COGA group finds for this section can be
marked as a "*critical update*."

Anything outside of the Cognitive and Learning section that COGA feels
should be reworked, can be marked as a "*future update*."  The EOWG will
then circle back to the items marked for "future update" when they move the
content into the new re-designed website.

I am hopeful that we can spend some time on this at our next meeting, but
if you want to send your feedback to me, I will compile it and get it to
the EOWG.

technology fully accessible to people with disabilities.  It can be done
... it must be done ... it will be done!*
